    From Memory the pool is not monitored after dark. There is no gate around the pool or security on site to stop you going near so from that, the pool would be accessible at all hours.

    I am a single male traveler and will be in the area January 3-9. Is there a town nearby - walking distance? I am also interested in scuba diving. How is the diving in the area? Any nightlife? Thank you!

    Not much night life out there. I suggest if you go north... probably better coral reefs as well.
